Back and Forth

This week we are running back and forth quite a bit. Back and forth from the hospital. Isaiah is having more problems with going poop, and he was admitted on Tuesday evening for ng Go-Lytely solution. He's STILL on the Go-Lytely and still hasn't gotten his system flushed out. As of this evening, his doctor said he may still be there another couple of days. I feel so horrible for him, although as of tonight his spirits are better and he seems much more comfortable, having gotten some of his poop out. He is on a liquid diet and really wants pizza! At least he's desiring something. Up until today he just said he wasn't hungry.
Drew and Manny have been great at helping at home while we've been back and forth to the hospital. My dilemma is that I want and need to be in two places at once. Isaiah needs me at the hospital with him. Yet, Mia is still nursing and can't be left for very long. So, Albert has been pulling the majority of hospital duty. He's been there constantly since Tuesday night, comming home only briefly a couple times to switch cars. I have made two trips, for several hours each to visit, but sadly, can't stay with him since we have other little ones that need me here. Mia has taken a couple bottles of formula from her brothers which has bought me a few precious hours with Isaiah, knowing that I didn't have to rush back home to feed her. Still, I can't rely too heavily on the formula or my milk supply might dwindle, but it sure is nice to have available in a pinch such as this one. So it looks like the weekend will consist of more hospital running. I'm so glad that Isaiah is feeling much better and I hope he'll be all cleaned out soon so he can come home. He has lots of siblings that miss him!

Poor little guy! they have to figure this out soon!
Always a comfort being reminded that the Holy Spirit Himself is praying for you!
Romans 8:26-27 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
